Taste of Vietnam - Yummy Vietnamese food in Stockholm

In all honesty, it has been a miserable past few days with the weather and all, but..  it hasn't stopped me from going out and meeting new and old friends and enjoying a few eats.

Yesterday, I tried out Korean.. and today, it was so good to meet up with a few girlfriends whom I first met at Meetups a few months ago.  We opted for Vietnamese, as two of us have tried this some weeks ago, and couldn't wait to go back.  Some noodle soup would be great for warming up our bellies in this cold and wet weather.

This is actually quite a good place for lunch.  The food is fast and the serving is quite generous and most importantly, they are very tasty!  Again, it is best to go at around 11.30 - 11.45am to get a table during the weekdays as by 12.00pm - 12.30pm, the place is quite crowded.  By 2pm, it's all quiten down again and we were the only people left in there!

I am quite happy with today as after this, we decided to venture out in the rain (and snow) to a nearby cafe, which happened to be.... THE CUTEST LITTLE CAFE... and seriously, seriously, I think I have found the perfect spot for that fine day in December!!  But more about that later!

Anyhow, here's some snippets from our lunch.  Btw, they do lunch specials, where different specials are to be had every day.  The last time I was here, I had the Bun Bo Hue (spicy noodle soup) for 79KR.  The specials are usually up on the TV screen at the bar/cash register.
